Philosophy and Style of Worship
We describe our worship gatherings as being Modern Liturgical. We are “modern” in the sense that we include elements of today’s world such as new music and technology. Also, our gatherings are somewhat informal. Pastors do not wear special garments or robes, and the atmosphere is not stiff or stuffy.
Our worship is “liturgical” in the sense that we incorporate many traditional elements that have defined Christian worship throughout the centuries. The word “liturgy” simply means “the work of the people,” a reminder that the work of worshipping God is not only the task of pastors or worship leaders, but also the job of the whole church to glorify God. Our liturgy revolves around 5 primary elements:
Proclamation of the Gospel
The Sacraments (Communion and Baptism)
When we gather to worship God, we are reminded that we are joining a great tradition of believers who have come together for over two-thousand years for such a purpose. At the same time, we are not worshiping a God who exists only in history or in Bible stories; we are worshipping a God who is real, present and active in our world today.
